Q: Can you call police if neighbors make noise late at night?

Some of my neighbors make much noise after 11 p.m. (during week) I have trouble falling sleep. Is it ok call police or authorities? Is it against law make noise late at night?

Here in China people do not respect their neighbors. There is always noise at night especially firecrackers. You are on your own.

Noise is a way of life here. Get some earplugs.

People used to call the police on me and my room mates ALL THE TIME for noise complaints. But that might just be a matter of knowing the right people. Which we obviously didn't.

"If you have a connection" or willing to offer some money, smokes or alcohol....nice to see that the upsatnding law in this country really puts its "Harmonious" thoughts first eh....forget calling them for anything, they are a waste of time and even if they do turn up, will probably not do anything anyway.

Yeah, u can call the police...

But what I did, just yelled from my window, told them to shut up... It's not totally quiet now, but it's surely much better, as long as I can fall asleep...

So, talk to them first, if that doesn't help, u don't have other choice but call the police...

Just go and knock your neighbour´s door and politely tell them that you need to sleep. Police "should" be busy with really important things and not this...

Your chances to get them to shut up by knocking on their door loudly and yell angrily in their faces are about 200% higher.
